Christmas Card DIYs

I always have the best of intentions to make my own Christmas cards. And sometimes I do. But often I end up only mailing a few cards to close family because I only had time to put together or money to spend on a handful of cards.

This year I'm starting my good intentions a little early and may actually mail out a respectable number of cards. With that in mind, I'm concentrating on ideas that are on the simple side and can be reproduced easily.

Ornaments Card DIY from Creativity Prompt
Creativity Prompt has a video that details how to make these cards. I love the look of 3D images on cards.

Reindeer Postcard from Eat Drink Chic
These reindeer can also be used as gift tags or ornaments! Free printable is available on the Eat Drink Chic blog and a tutorial for putting them together.
Stitched Gift Cards from A Spoonful of Sugar Designs
A Spoonful of Sugar Designs has a quick and easy DIY for sewing fabric hearts and stars onto paper. Their simplicity is delightful.

A few other ideas I'm playing with are using stamps, embossing powder, and embroidering on paper.

  1. The trick should be to start early to have enough time for some experiences :) But yours really look great, really professional ;)

  2. Thanks! Too bad I haven't started making cards yet. Soon though, hopefully.
